Current Exhibition


Johnstown – The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Johnstown is pleased to announce its latest exhibition, Seeing Our Scene: Artists and the Pennsylvania Landscape. The exhibition opens June 8 and will remain on view through August 17.

Featuring approximately 25 paintings, drawings and prints, Seeing Our Scene surveys the varied landscape of the Keystone State, emphasizing the familiar sights of our own immediate region. Ranging from urban views in Altoona and Johnstown to bucolic images of the countryside around Bedford, Ligonier and Loretto, the exhibition offers an array of engaging and pleasant hometown subjects. By way of contrast, the show also takes us further afield with a number of images drawn from central and eastern Pennsylvania as well.


Seeing Our Scene features works from the Museum’s permanent collection and offers a mix of old favorites and works that are seldom on view. Among the artists represented are well-known contemporary painters including Ron Donoughe, Steven Gilbert, Joe Servello and Michael M. Strueber. Classic works by Adolf Dehn, Edwin Zoller and Eleanor Zygler also will be on view. As a group, the works in this exhibition constitute an appealing survey and an artistic celebration of Pennsylvania’s natural beauty and human industry.


The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Johnstown is located in the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. The Museum is a handicapped-accessible facility and is open to the public free of charge. Hours of operation are weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For additional information, please call the Museum at (814) 269-7234 or visit
